Review/Publish Print Page

Almost There

Once you have added all of your content and are ready to publish, there are still a few more steps -- outlined on this page -- that you need to take.

Once these steps are completed, your guide will be published and will be listed on libguides.mpsaz.net.

Of course, you can continue to make changes to the guide after it is published.



Publishing Your LibGuide

To ensure the above criteria is met, as well as consistency and quality, Library Services will review LibGuides before they are published.

  • To see what your guide will look like when published, click on Preview on the yellow command bar at the top of the page - the preview page will open in a new window
  • To submit your guide for review, send a request for feedback to llsears@mpsaz.org
  • Library Services should be able to provide feedback within 2-3 working days
  • At the end of the feedback period, Library Services will either publish your guide to libguides.mpsaz.net or notify you with revisions needed to meet the criteria
  • Once revisions are made, resubmit for publication
